An Unusual Foreign Body

  Channels: General, Retina | Posted 8/12/2013

M. Cuneyt Ozmen presents a case involving an unusual foreign body following bombings in Syria. After removing the object through a large limbal incision, the object is discovered to be a piece of a plastic playing card 14 mm in diameter. Vitrectomy is completed from a small clear corneal opening with the help of a noncontact, wide-angle viewing system (EIBOS).
